Iwata Smart Jet Compressor Pressure adjustment Knob(Drain Valve)
Posted by Arespontus on Monday, February 05, 2018 4:59 PM

Hello all,

I purchase an Iwata Smart Jet Compressor a few years ago. I can't figure something out. The Pressure adjustment Knob looks entirely different from the ones included in the Parts list in the assembly instructions that came with the box. Did Iwata change this part? Or am I missing a part to change the pressure coming from the compressor.

Thank you,

Scott

Does the compressor work? does the pressuer change with the turning of the knob?

Hi Don,

No it does not look like that one. There is no knob that sticks out of the bottom of the moisture trap with a little indicator to change the pressure by turning clockwise or counter clockwise.

I actually found a picture of what mine looks like.

The picture you linked to is actually a SprintJet, not a SmartJet.  Here is a better photo I found of the SprintJet.  The bleeder looks the same to me. But, in this photo it looks different.  Apparently they shipped two different types.  At any rate, it is not a real regulator, just an adjustable bleed.
